Its the thermal cut-out... when there is something like limescale that causes the temp to get over 50c - the thermal cut out is
activated... it has to be replaced... which u can buy it from triton or get an engineer out to replace it

tip... make sure u clean the shower and shower heads often with a limescale remover....

On our AE125, the thermal cut-off is tripping AFTER the water is turned off. The heating element is getting so hot you cannot touch it


The elements are getting over heated then set temperature.You have a defective thermostat. The elements will continue to heat until they reach the set point of the thermostat. Try to lower the temp setting first. If that does not fix it, you'll need to repalce the thermostat, located very near the element, under the screwed cover on the side of the tank.------------- To know how this heater works, read as follows:---

Because electric tankless water heaters have to instantaneously raise the temperature of incoming water to a selected hot water temperature, they require very powerful heating elements. To power the heating elements of this 27,000 Watt model, you will need to upgrade the electrical service you were using for your storage tank water heater. The PowerStar AE125 will require a 240V, 200 Amp service. In addition you will need to install three 40 amp dedicated double pole breakers in your electrical box. In Canada, you will require one 120 Amp breaker.

The PowerStar AE125 electric tankless water heater incorporates a very sensitive flow sensor, and three heating elements. The heat from the electric elements is electronically modulated on the basis of the flow rate of the water entering the water heater, and the temperature rise that the water heater must achieve. Through its electronic modulation system, the AE125 maintains a very precise hot water temperature. As a safety precaution, each of the three heating modules is protected by an electro-mechanical thermal cut-out. This device will cut power to a particular module if the temperature gets too hot.

Sometimes there isn't enough hot water for a shower when the hot water mode is set.I have set the hot water temperature to 65 degrees


Are you waiting long enough for the water to be totally heated, before showering? Unfortunately, all the water doesn't reach 60 degrees celsius (140 degrees fahrenheit) in a matter of minutes. Try switching to the hot water mode sooner and allow enough time for the system to heat up entirely. If that doesn't solve the problem, the burner may need cleaning,

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

No hot water when switched on there is power at the shower terminals


Hi,

I believe you are talking about an electric shower head...
The most common thing is the heating element going bad...
Check for power to the heating element...

I have Rinnai R53 tankless water heater which is about 5 year old. recently it has problem to keep water consistant warm. when I take shower , I feel water change from hot to cold antomatically. what is...


You are probably running a low flow shower head and have not had any maint. done on the unit. When the water flow is low and the unit is dirty it can't exchange enough heat to the water and this causes the heat exchanger to gradually increase in temp. The unit then shuts down to allow the heater to cool. This is an automatic reset high limit switch that will turn the burners back on automatically. This problem can be exasperated by 1/2 inch trunk lines. Call a hvac tech in your area to come and clean the unit. He should also be able to increase the draft inducer fan motor speed to allow more cooling of the heat exchanger.

Have triton ivory electric shower but flow rate is rubbish when set to 7 or 8 too make water hotter why?


How cold is the water coming into the heater?
How long has it been in use?
Do you have 'Hard' water?

It sounds like a scaling, and flow restriction problem--
Tell us more what you are trying to do, and what you are working with-- (as far as water, hardness, pressure, age, etc.)

Rads get very hot when taking a shower heating not turned on


Hi,
That is because the Flo-check valve(s) in the heating system is bad and allowing the hot water to "gravity" flow through the loops...
Get a HVAC professional to replace the flo-check on your heating system...

Electric immersion heater keeps cutting out


Sounds to me like you have a bad thermostat. You should be able to give a model number to any local plumbing supply place and get one for replacement. make sure power is of the unit before replaceing.

Most conventional showers have brass seats or rubber seats that can deteriorate over time. these will leak or dribble and not maintain your temp.. Rubber and brass seats are a fairly common and easy replacement. It sure beats trying to rip out a shower valve.
